Epitome of story-telling, pinnacle of love.
No other book I have absorbed until now made me feel this much. This is larger than life. This is inscrutably inseparable. For the first time, I can ascertain that my heart is literally too full for laying out how I feel. If nonplussed was happiness, if shattered resembled love, contrasts and paradoxes were interchangeably wafting across... I still don't get how could something honestly be this impeccable. I cried and cried. And add, on top of everything, absorbing the book on a computer screen, not able to stop. Not wanting to stop. No one would. I bet.
